What is C/C++ Language?

C is a particularly popular language for personal computer programmers because it is relatively small — it requires less memory than other languages. The first major program written in C was the UNIX operating system, and for many years C was considered to be inextricably linked with UNIX.

Why Need It C?

C language is most basic language. This course will be useful to anybody who wants to go into IT, software and computer industry.

An introduction to the C programming language is the FIRST step to quickly grasp the intricacies of object oriented programming (with programs like C++) and program in other languages which have been influenced by C, like Java & JavaScript, to name a few.

C is a middle level language. There are three types of language – High Level, Middle Level & Low Level. High level languages are user oriented, giving faster development of programs, example is BASIC. Low level languages are machine oriented; they provide faster execution of programs. C is a middle level language because it combines the best part of high level language with low level language. It is both user and machine oriented and provides infinite possibilities.

Best in C

If you are a student wanting to get into software development, or an professional wanting to add C programming skills to your repertoire, this introductory course is for you.

The C programming language is a popular and widely used programming language. It is a general-purpose programming language. There would be very few computers in the world which are not set-up for C.

What we teach?
This course introduces you to the basics of programming in C. You will learn how programming languages work with data, what program flow is, and how to use functions, methods and routines. You will also get training in on how to create simple C programs and run them.

What’s next?

If there’s one thing we could recommend, it’d definitely be Boost C++ Libraries. In fact, Boost is not a single library. It’s a collection of them, and they’re high-quality, portable, open source and well praised by people ranging from students to the C++ standards committee.

Besides, Learning a new language will also give you insides about the strengths and weaknesses of C++, so you don’t become a “one trick pony”.

You should invest some time in learning as much Mathematics as you can. Core fields such as Geometry, Algebra, Trig and Matrix Algebra would be, IOHO, the bare minimum, especially if you aim at finding a well paid job.
